Via CBS News:
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said it’s “very unfortunate” a rule change could allow his fellow presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg into the next Democratic debates. The qualifications no longer include a unique-donor threshold.
“That is what being a multi-billionaire is about. Some very good friends of mine who were competing in the Democratic nomination — people like Cory Booker of New Jersey, Julián Castro — work really, really hard. Nobody changed the rules to get them in the debate,” he said on “CBS This Morning” Friday.
“But I guess if you’re worth $60 billion, you can change the rules. I think that is very, very unfortunate,” he added.
Interestingly Bernie Sanders no problems with a rule change that would allow an Independent to run & debate in a Democratic primary.
